The remaining “Chibok girls” kidnapped in April 2014 will not be returning home , according to a top Boko Haram commander recently detained by Nigerian security forces.
The captured terrorist told police that the remaining girls, thought to number around 100 , have been indoctrinated and married to Boko Haram fighters.
On 14 April 2014, Boko Haram terrorists kidnapped 276 mainly Christian schoolgirls from a government secondary school in Chibok, north-east Nigeria. Around 160 have subsequently escaped, been rescued or released.
Girls reported being whipped by their captors to force them into marriage, while a group of Christian girls experienced a mock execution for refusing to convert to Islam.
The girls’ kidnap briefly caught the attention of media around the world, with celebrities using the Twitter hashtag #bringbackourgirls to call for their rescue or release.
